A plaque of the Finbarr story records: St Finnbarr was born in Ireland in the sixth century. He was Cork's first Bishop. The city of Cork grew up around the monastery which Finnbarr founded. He is now the city's patron. Finnbarr was baptised 'Lochan' but was called 'Fionnbharr', whitehead, because of his fair hair. The name 'Barry' is derived from Finnbarr. His feast day is September 25th. [spellings as recorded on plaque[.
